Sounds like he has something to hide!!
Need to be very cautious buying panels made in China. There are a couple
good ones, but a lot of them won't even meet the standards to get the
states rebates in most states.

I was at InterSolar in Munich and there were atleast 40 chinese PV
Most of them had a stall and some panels on display... looked like the
usual run of the mill
PV modules and most of them didn't know much (or maybe it was the
language) about the technical
specs of their modules beyond the basics.
But they DID have "datasheets" albeit with horrendous errors in them.
So its your call but I would advise a local manufacturer ... that
helps the climate too :)

It's the state website and there is a section that has the CEC/PTC
ratings of all panels that qualify for the state rebate..
CEC is California Energy Commission
PTC is Performance Test Conditions
These show the actual performance of the panels.
